Specialty Tagging Software
Tag Clinic v4.3
A full-featured tag editor and batch file renamer for digital audio files.
Supporting .aac,.ape, .flac, .m4a, .mp3, .mp4, .mpc, .ogg, .vqf, and .wma tags.
Real-time tag editor creates tag data by extracting it from file names, file paths, or via download. Batch-renames files using existing tag data or data you create, with a straightforward interface that allows the quick creation of reusable naming templates. Rename a single file, selected files, or multiple folders of files. Preview and edit new names before they're applied, and undo changes if you change your mind.
Tag Clinic converts tags between versions, auto-fills them, swaps text between fields, or creates one type of tag using data from another. Choose which tag fields to make visible and in what order they appear. Drag rows around to create the exact playlist order you want, or drag columns around to get the view you need. Supports Find, Find All, and Find & Replace. Prints tags and saves tag lists to six different file formats.
Tag Clinic features the most comprehensive support available of tag types and tag fields, providing access to many fields rarely supported. "Quickload Mode" restores tag library views from a database file in much less time than it takes to reread tags. Integrated browser supports Drag & Drop.
Need to support non-English languages? You may prefer the Unicode version (a bit slower loading tags than the standard version).
Tag Backup & Restore v1.1
Audio tag archiver and editor.
If you're a serious audiophile you've invested considerable time and effort in your tags. The information they contain often comes from diverse, hard-to-locate sources and can be more troublesome to replace than the music itself. Tag Backup & Restore protects your investment by backing up your tags to any one of three possible archive types: 1) Access 2000®, 2) MS Excel® Worksheet, and 3) Delimited Text. Once archived, you have full control over what to restore. Recreate a single tag or single tag field, or restore a whole library of tags at one time. TBR is built upon an excellent real-time tag editor and batch file renamer, too.
Supports .aac, .ape, .flac, .m4a, .mp3, .mp4, .mpc, .ogg, .vqf, and .wma tags.
Store album art, artist scans, and other files in tags for safe-keeping and one-click access. View, store, extract, rearrange, or remove pictures and other objects. Copy or paste them, or move them around from tag to tag.
iT Library Clinic v1.0
An iTunes library and tag editor.
Supporting .m4a, .m4b, .m4p, .m4r, .m4v, .mp3, .mp4, and .wav files and tags.
What Library Clinic does
Library Clinic is an iTunes library assistant used to edit and manipulate the tag content and file locations of files listed in the iTunes library. It offers a more powerful and versatile tag editor and file renamer than the corresponding tools found in iTunes, plus it makes it easy to move specific files, or even a whole library, to another location without confusing iTunes. Use it to make multiple alternative versions of your library, then activate the one you're interested in at any particular time. You can "catch up" libraries with corresponding tag changes, or tags with library changes, with just a single mouse click. It also contains an integrated playlist editor.
Library Clinic doesn't work directly on the iTunes library itself, but instead works on a copy of iTunes' backup file (XML file) in memory. Changes you make are not applied to the actual library until you tell it to, or until you allow it to. When changes are applied, a backup of the original library is created which can be restored at any time.
What Library Clinic doesn't do
Restoring an iTunes library from a backup copy has some inherent limitations. Even restoring from an unaltered iTunes backup file is unlikely to restore a library to the exact state it was in originally, because not every characteristic and nuance of the original library is represented in one of iTunes' own backups. If you're a podcast enthusiast, for example, you'll be disappointed that subscription information is not preserved in backups. Nor can iTunes be induced to put podcast files back into the podcast category. iTunes will also set the "Date Added" field for each restored file to the date and time the library is restored, not to yjr date and time specified for each file in a backup.
In general, because Library Clinic works on a backup copy of the iTunes library rather than on the actual library itself, the inherent limitations of the restoration process will make this program a "tool" for some users, rather than a complete solution. Its suitability for creating iTunes libraries from backup files will depend largely upon how iTunes is used by each individual.
A handy little html-to-text converter.
Supporting .html, .htm, and .txt files.
Just a little utility for those who sometimes need to copy html text from a Web page into a text document, or even convert entire Web pages into text documents. If you've ever attempted these maneuvers, you know that html text usually copies over into a text document as one or more long, cumbersome lines filled with tags, symbols, and other unneeded bother. You typically have to spend a lot of time cleaning it up, removing unnecessary information, adding line breaks, etc., before it looks right on a regular text page.
This little utility does much of this for you. It places an icon on your desktop onto which you can drop an html file to have it automatically converted into a text document by the same name. It removes html tags, adjusts line feeds, and quickly reformats the text. The text is then placed into a new file, in the same location, but with a ".txt" file extension.
Alternatively, you can use the utility to reformat html text that's in the Clipboard. Simply copy any html-laden text into the Clipboard, double-click the program's desktop icon, and the contents are instantly converted and made available for pasting out again as plain text.
Included is a small Settings Utility that lets you set margins and adjust some other helpful options.
